Memoir & Personal Essay In this course we will focus on distilling life moments and experiences that may be fit for the page. Whether you desire to capture key events for family members, or write for public consumption in book or essay form, this  class will help you take the initial steps in realizing your vision.

Personal essays offer a writer space to create a  narrative story from their experiences, writing episodes from their life that have brought them in touch with humanity and their own sense of self. Exploring these happenings on paper, the writer can bear witness to their own evolution and transformation, providing an example to others at the same time.

Creative Writing  Combining original prompts and proven exercises, we will explore the basics of this craft. Elements covered include character development, writing natural dialogue, conveying your writing style, experimenting with setting and place, how to plot development in a story and choosing a point of view to tell the story. You will also learn how to hone your senses to add depth and lushness to your writing.
